Well we all have our feelings about different shows, and Dave certainly has his . I suspect that if any of us got placed in his seat, we would have the same "...why didn't he pick ..." responses . Except for the missing reel, I don't quite get this one, but maybe I will feel different when I hear it in it's new form .
With SSDD so recent, sadly, I don't think we will see more 72 right away . Now some early, to mid 73 , is relatively not covered . Something from the holes in the pre Keith 70-71 era , 84, 91 etc., but I do understand the argument that with only so many years in life , and God knows how long they will be able to keep putting these recording, the urgency of getting to the "Primal" shows, and not just the "interesting" ones .

I have the feeling BVD if we made the picks save a few like minded loons there would be mobs with torches and weaponry forming outside Rhino headquarters.As DD alluded to it is a very complicated task choosing a show for release and it is usually met with a 50/50 or say 60/40 approval/disapproval rate.This is Dave's tenth pick and I only agree with one choice that being 11/17/73.Being unheard I can see why volume 6 (12/20,12/21 and 2/2/70) was released and although the music outside of some of the bonus disc from volume 3 (10/22/71,bonus disc 10/21/71) is unimpressive I understand the release from a historic perspective.The seven other choices in my mind range from questionable to what the fuck.

I would heartily endorse a release of 9/28/72 which has a killer I Know You Rider,PITB and a monster,all-time Other One.A bonus disc from 8/1/73 containing the Dark Star->El Paso->Eyes of the World->Morning Dew with the stompin' Casey Jones to close it out would be a welcome addition to my collection.

I second the 9.28.72 proposal. Wait- I third it.
